Nextcloud Deck 1.0 available today, plus Deck 1.0 for Android!

Originally published at: https://nextcloud.com/blog/nextcloud-deck-1-0-available-today-plus-deck-for-android/

Over the last months, the popular Kanban task management app for Nextcloud, Deck, has seen a rewrite of its front-end to the new Vue UI components. This brings a more unified interface with the rest of Nextcloud and accelerated development. On top of that, a number of nice features was added, around commenting, filtering and card management that make it a lot easier to use for small teams.

Today, Nextcloud Deck 1.0.0 is out and it comes with all those feature improvements and over 100 fixes & refinements. The release is accompanied with an Android app for Deck!

Deck 1.0.0 is here: whatโ€™s new?

Beyond the complete rewrite of the frontend, a lot of collaboration and productivity features have been added. Now it is easier for a team to manage workload and for managers to get a picture of howโ€™s everything going at any time. You can now:

  • View separate comment and activity timelines
  • Reply to comments

    So, welcome to a better, more efficient Nextcloud Deck: See what happens and when to each card to have an overview of the work progress, just by looking at the activity timeline. Check out the comment timeline and reply only to the one you have feedback about!

  • Deck - comment reply
    auto upload preferences
  • Filter cards on board

    Get to know what your team is doing at any moment by filtering cards based on various properties, like

    • tag

      See what is still pending because of you, or what is marked as urgent on your colleagueโ€™s to do list and help with it if you have time.

    • assigned team member

      Check who is assigned to a task that is blocking you from doing yours and ping them to finish it so you can then get your own task done!

    • due date

      Prioritize your to do for the day/week based on the due date and never miss a deadline!

  • Add cards/ boards to projects

    Simply add a card or a board to a project for a clearer overview of what all that is about. This project could be another card or board, a file on your Nextcloud or even a conversation in Talk! So, connect to it every necessary document for the task, or the call you will later have on that topic. Your colleagues will appreciate it!

  • Move cards to other boards

    Productivity tools are not meant to cut your time into half due to organizing matters. Now you can even move cards between different boards. Just make a rough draft of your to do in a random/temporary board and worry about putting it on the right place later!

  • Clone boards with existing stacks and labels

    Is it that time of the year again? And you need to organize the same event for another time? Well everything (to doโ€™s, contacts, files etc) is on the board you used last year. All you need to do is clone it and adjust deadlines! Or do you have a list of recurring task you do every week? Create a board listing all these and use it as a template you can clone each week and report progress properly!

  • Upload multiple files at once and in parallel

    Time is productivity โ€“ no need to get stuck for minutes on simple task as uploading files one by one. Select all and done!

These are the most important improvement of this release. If you want to check on everything that is changed take a look here.

Hi,

the deck survey is closed for guestsโ€ฆ

Noticed that too :-/. Use private mode of your browser or log-out and you will be able to participate.

Ah, now I get it - funny that a guest can have less rights than a strangerโ€ฆ :slight_smile:

Yeah^^ really donโ€™t know what went wrong there :laughing:

the cards linked in the task list would be nice.
for deadlines and work schedule it would make it much more pleasant.

I assume that this would later work via the DAV connection to the calendar?

Thereโ€™s a couple issues open about that :slight_smile:


Has it been made possible to add a card to deck automatically yet? This news post from September alludes to it https://nextcloud.com/blog/nextcloud-flow-makes-it-easy-to-automate-actions-and-workflows/

Just curious as this would be very useful.
